8:06 pm
afghanistan were coming to an end. as a result, all british troops assigned to make his mission and i've done this done on returning home or will the us president joe biden will be holding a news conference on the pull out from august on this hour, which we will bring to you live in the meantime, let's bring in our white house correspondent, kimberly how it gets you joining us from washington. d. c. so what can we expect the president to be saying later this hour? we're getting a clear sense of what the us president and commander in chief of the us forces will be talking about with respect to afghanistan, the white house press secretary jen saki holding her daily briefing. and we expect that what the president is going to talk about is some of the concern surrounding the uptick in violence that has been seen in afghanistan. particularly since the us forces, for the most part have withdrawn with only traces left behind. and the concern
8:07 pm
being that the taliban continues to make gains and will continue to make gains in advance of what is ultimately the complete withdrawal of us troops. although the white house has been careful to point out, there will still be a diplomatic, as well as a security presence that will remain indefinitely. and to that end, what we expect is that the u. s. president will make some of these remarks and bring about a personal tone in terms of delivering them. you have to remember that the u. s. president is also the father of a veteran who served and also he believes died as a result of not direct injuries and combat, but residual industry in rather injuries, burn pits that potentially caused the brain tumor that killed his son. and so what's the white house press severson harry said just moments ago is that the u. 7 s president came to the very difficult decision that he was not going to send another generation of americans to fight
8:08 pm
a war that he believed was not winnable at least militarily. and so that is going to be the crux of the message. so what we're expecting is the president, this our will convey to the american people about the problems he inherited and why he made a difficult decision to bring the us troops home and why he knows that it won't be easy for afghanistan. as a result of that decision and what the united states will do to support as they make that transition. so we're watching very carefully as the president set to deliver those remarks from the coming hour. ok for the time being. thank you so much. kimberly, how can police in haiti say they've killed 4 suspects, believes to be involved in the assassination of president of l. louise security. officials say they were involved in a gun battle with an armed group, so they say they have arrested for others. louise was shot during your rate on his home on wednesday, the in term prime minister closure that said the crime will not go unpunished or
